Maria Anna of Neuberg, Queen of Spain as consort of Carlos II. 1667-1740. Pretty but difficult, she was chosen as queen because the king had no issue, and her parents had had 17 children. Drove everyone bats (at a guess, she suffered from some sort of congenital mental instability) and ironically, had no issue. Lots of inbreeding in her family--related to Anne of Cleves in 2 lines, and to Hesse in at least 2.
